2 Gingerbread Man Cookie Box


The more the merrier. 
When I made my first box for my gingerbread man I was happy with it. I showed it to my daughter                                            and she said its cute but 2 cookies are better then one. 

Well since she is a cookie monster I had to take her up on that challenge. So I made my same box but for 2 gingerbread man cookies.

It comes out the same way but is a tad bigger so that you can fit 2 cookies in it. Now if you didn't want to fit 2 cookies it can also fit other candies and even a gift card.

Spirited Snowman Card Set

I guess you can say that I am obsessed with these snowman. They are just too cute and so much fun to work with. 

With these cards I couldn't decide which snowman I wanted to use. So I ended up using all three to make a cute little card set that you can give to someone. 

When I fist made the set I used Cherry Cobbler but since I only had Real Red Ribbon I decided to make it in Real Red. Either one looks good. You really can't tell the difference.

Dashing Deer Christmas Card

I really wanted to make more with this set but inspiration was not coming in time. This bundle is so beautiful and I feel bad to see it go to waist since it is retiring at the end of the year. 

However this set is something I will keep forever and use in the years to come. It's just too pretty to pass up. Especially the deer I used in this card. The detail is so pretty when you emboss it. 

This card was fun to make and super easy too. The DSP makes that reindeer really pop too. Love it so much!

Gold Foil Edged Merry Christmas Card

When I saw these Gold and Silver Foil-Edged Cards (147901, 147900) in the Holiday catalog I knew I had to have them. They make the perfect Christmas cards and don't use up all my gold and silver paper. 

This card came out so pretty. I really wanted to expand my Christmas color pallet and use nice bright colors. So I chose Real Red and Granny Apple Green. Plus it matched the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper (146921). 

Also adding ink to your embossing folder is a must. It makes the embossed image stand out so much better and makes a great impact to your already beautiful card.

Candy Cane Christmas Tags

I love making special tags for my Christmas presents. It's fun to mass produce a great design and have all my presents look good under the tree.

What also is a good idea is to keep the tags and recycle them every year. I try to do this but end up making new ones to match my decor or wrapping paper for that year.

These tags came out great. I knew when I saw the Candy Cane Builder Punch that I have going to make tags with the candy canes. And they came out beautifully.

Make a purchase from now and December 15th and I will draw a winner of these tags. You only have until the 15th so I can get them to you before Christmas.

Country Lane Suite Card #5

My last card in the series was actually a last minute add. This was a completely separate card that was made after I had made all the other cards. But since it matched I wanted to add it to the series.

This was different since I included the Buffalo Check Stamp Set (147794). I was so excited when they showed the Buffalo Check stamp set in the new Holiday Catalog. I love it. And whats cool about it is you can make it plaid.

What I did was just get out my ruler and make lines using my Cherry Cobbler marker. It was so simple and can be done with any color. (see video). It just made the card!

Card Base  8 1/2 x 5 1/2
score 4 1/4
Whisper White -for plaid  2 7/8 x 5 1/2
